To date, there have been many improvements made to the basic polygraph instrument. This book outlines the instrumentation as well as the latest in questioning techniques and methods available to the professional interviewer to determine truth from deception. The book covers psychology and physiology, a history of polygraph with the advances of leading figures, question formulation, data analysis, legal implications and legal cases, and the author’s developed technique Integrated Zone Comparison Technique (IZCT).

The polygraph lie detection test is currently at the centre of much controversy in both the UK and the US. The Polygraph Test - published by SAGE Publications in association with The British Psychological Society - is the most comprehensive account of issues surrounding the use of the test in criminal investigations, personal screening and security vetting. The book is organized in four parts to present the reader with the basic facts' of how the polygraph test does - and does not - work as well as the wider psychological and legal implications. Part One describes the test, analyses its accuracy, questions its use in psychometrics and considers its role in vetting, investigation and interrogation. Part Two asks questions absolutely fundamental to psychology: can truth and honesty - indeed, even emotion - be measured? Part Three looks at the polygraph test in practice and Part Four considers legal and civil rights issues with contributions from British and American lawyers and a British trade unionist. The Polygraph Test: Lies, Truth and Science will be essential reading to psychologists and students of psychology.

About a century ago, Dean John Wigmore, Northwestern University School of Law, hypothesized that if "there is ever devised a psychological test for the valuation of witnesses, the law will run to meet it." But his prophesy has yet to prove itself. In fact, it often seems that the law has been running away from the polygraph. In his new book, Ken Blackstone explains that this has less to do with the validity of the polygraph and more to do with the lack of a bright line between forensic and utility polygraph. Polygraph, Sex Offenders, and the Court: Provides a history of civil commitment in the United States of America Describes the psychological and physiological fundamentals of polygraph testing Explains the complexity of the polygraph protocol Establishes standards for professionals to expect in polygraph testing

The polygraph, often portrayed as a magic mind-reading machine, is still controversial among experts, who continue heated debates about its validity as a lie-detecting device. As the nation takes a fresh look at ways to enhance its security, can the polygraph be considered a useful tool? The Polygraph and Lie Detection puts the polygraph itself to the test, reviewing and analyzing data about its use in criminal investigation, employment screening, and counter-intelligence. The book looks at: The theory of how the polygraph works and evidence about how deceptivenessâ€"and other psychological conditionsâ€"affect the physiological responses that the polygraph measures. Empirical evidence on the performance of the polygraph and the success of subjects’ countermeasures. The actual use of the polygraph in the arena of national security, including its role in deterring threats to security. The book addresses the difficulties of measuring polygraph accuracy, the usefulness of the technique for aiding interrogation and for deterrence, and includes potential alternativesâ€"such as voice-stress analysis and brain measurement techniques.

Was Francisco Cantú an der amerikanisch-mexikanischen Grenze erlebt, bringt ihn fast um den Verstand. Cantú hat Politik studiert und wollte am eigenen Leib erfahren, was an der Grenze wirklich geschieht. Als Mitglied der United States Border Patrol rettet er Verdurstende aus der Wüste, deportiert aber auch illegale Einwanderer oder erlebt, wie Familien auseinandergerissen werden. In seiner persönlichen Reportage zeigt er, was Grenzen für die Menschen wirklich bedeuten. No Man’s Land mutet wie eine Tragödie an und bildet doch die Realität wahrheitsgetreu ab, unverzerrt, grausam und zutiefst berührend.
